Here's another question you've probably answered 4,500 times before. It's about symptoms.

Is it normal for your symptoms to come and go? Say, one day you eat bread and you get sick, and another day you eat bread but nothing happens?

Yes.

My various symptoms "came and went" for 35 years. That's how they got the various labels : "IBS" and "GERD" (among others)

Then, they all just STAYED. Every day was the same. Horrid.

Once DXed and off gluten, almost all of them are GONE. :)

Woo! That's good to hear. I'm really hoping I have the coeliacs disease, because I JUST WANT to FEEL BETTER!

I recently went back on gluten for a couple days, to see what would happen and determine if celiac is really what I have (never had the biopsy, and my bloodwork was negative, so I always have the doubt that maybe, just maybe I was misdiagnosed.) Well, other than having to eliminate my food within a few hours, I was totally fine right after the gluten. I was a bit tired for the following few days, pale, but nothing worse than that. I was really beginning to second guess my diagnosis at this point, and was ready to throw in the towel to this whole gluten free thing, thinking that all the positive changes I'd seen these past few months were entirely imagined. Then, about 4 days after glutening myself,I had D, and that confirmed my diagnosis for me. It took about 4 days, but my body reacted negatively. Give yourself at least a week to see if you develop any reactions- I know that sometimes my reactions are immediate (red spots on my face) and sometimes, like my last experiment, it takes close to a week. Good luck!

Yes, that is a good point! Delayed reactions and prolonged reactions are quite common.

If I am accidentally CCed, I have symptoms for up to 3 weeks, including neurological ones. (This is MY experience, though--others do not have symptoms lingering for that long. )

Ditto all above. Yes, very normal to have varying symptoms and response.

Oh yeah, 4501 now. :D
